A family Tradition – Brandy Truffles

Every year there is a conversation started around the beginning of December about will my mum be making her amazing truffles this year,  Well of course the answer is always yes.  They have become a real hit with all our family and friends and they are usually devoured in minutes.

I couldn’t even tell you how or when it even started but I know something it is one of the best thing my mum has started and I think alot of family and friends will agree too.  Since moving out last year I decided I would start making them as well because they are quite easy to make. So I thought I would kindly share the recipe with you all below too.

What you will need:


  1. 8oz Bournville or dark chocolate
  2. 4 tablespoons of Brandy
  3. 3oz Margarine
  4. 4oz Icing Sugar (Sived)
  5. 4oz Ground Almond

What to do:

  1. Break up the chocolate and melt in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, when it starts melting add the margarine and then the Brandy, keep stiring it.
  2. While that is melting, get another bowl and put the ground almonds in and then Sive the icing sugar, stiring them all together.
  3. Slowly add the ground almonds and Icing Sugar to the chocolate mix  bit by bit making sure it is all mixed in together.
  4. Once it is all mixed in leave the mixture to cool for around 10 – 15minutes or until firm enough to roll into balls.
  5. Finally roll into chocolate hundred and thousands, and place in the mini cake cases.


This is the end product and I have to say they are delicious and Rachel at Parenthood highs and lows would say the same.

Would love to hear your thoughts if you have a go at making these.

Enjoy 🙂
